Amerigroup launches Teachers' Supply Closet

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Amerigroup kicked off its annual Teachers Supply Closet on Tuesday, which is meant to provide schools with the tools to be quality educators.

The organization kicked off the event at Rigdon Road Elementary School.

Teachers will also be supplied with hygiene and office supplies in addition to school supplies.

All in all, Amerigroup expects to give away around $35,000 worth of supplies to schools around the state.

Principal Charleen Robinson says the supply drive is about meeting the needs of its students.

The group will be making several stops at area schools including Fox Elementary in Columbus and Calloway Elementary in LaGrange to deliver the school supplies.
